Ember Data Meeting Minutes - 2014/07/02

– By Igor Terzic

Although most of our collaboration takes place on Github, IRC (#emberjs on freenode.net), and our Discourse site the Ember Data team meets privately every Wednesday at 11am PST through Google Hangout for a weekly discussion of all things Ember-Data.


@tomdale, @wycats, @terzicigor

PushPayload discussion

We discussed the PushPayload proposal

@wycats concluded that the original decision for pushPayload on the store to accept a type argument was a mistake. Decided that instead of creating several new hooks, the best course of actions seems to be to add a normalize method to the store.

Thus instead of doing pushAndNormalize from the discuss proposal, one can do

store.push(type, store.normalize(type, payload))

It also seems nice to have a normalize method on the store as the inverse of serialize which already exists on the model.

Group Coalescing

@hjdivad and @terzicigor recently added a groupedRecordsForFindMany hook on the findCoalescing branch to enable users to decide how to group coalesced requests.

The hook was given a +1. We also realized that this hook will also solve the problem of URLs being too long for findMany
